Brilliant track released as a single from Automat teasing their Heat album on Compost Records.

“Climb” features the hazy, dreamy and ethereal vocals of Argentine artist Barbie Williams backed by the live four piece band crafting trip hop as intricate and delicate as a spider web. “Climb” is musically HEAVY — grooves weighed down by density, by gravity, by rain, flashing in the glare of synths that explode like roman candles before quickly fizzling out. There’s a flair for the florid and radiant in Automat’s music and “Climb” is blindingly bright.
